Clean up the files? (Images)

Unread postby Christian Kessner » Thu May 03, 2018 6:22 am

Hello,

is it possible to "clean up" the project, i.e. remove images from the project folder that aren't used in any topic anymore?
When updating our manual, I change a lot of screenshots, and it's too time-consuming to delete the files manually whenever I do.

Hi Christian,

There is a function for this in the Report tool in the Project tab. Run a full report with image references and you will have an option to move the unused images to a folder when the report is displayed.

Important: Don't use the Table of Contents sorting option in the report if you have topics that are not included in the TOC. If you sort by TOC, topics not included in the TOC won't be included in the report. 8)
Regards,
